How The Lovely Law Firm Can Help You
When you retain a personal injury lawyer at The Lovely Law Firm, we will start working on your case immediately. While the vast majority of cases are successfully settled, we build each case as if it will head to a jury trial. The reason that we take this approach is that it allows us to gather strong evidence showing the clear liability of the defendants to show insurance companies that it would be in their best interests to offer fair settlements rather than to take their chances at trial. Our preparation includes conducting thorough investigations of our clients’ cases. This helps us to identify all of the people and entities that have contributed to the causes of their accidents so that our clients’ recovery amounts can be maximized. We hire investigators and a variety of different experts to help our lawyers, the insurance companies, and juries to understand what happened so that our clients’ cases will be strengthened. During the process, we treat every client as a partner in their case. We keep in good communication with our clients and encourage you to call whenever you have a question about your case.
We work to help our clients recover the damages to which they should be entitled in their cases, including the following types:
- Past lost wages and future expected losses of income
- Past medical bills and future expected treatment costs
- Rehabilitation costs
- Property losses
- In wrongful death cases, reasonable burial and funeral costs
- Reduction in your ability to earn an income
- Loss of lifetime expected earnings for victims who are killed because of the actions of others
- Mental and emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Reduction in the ability to enjoy life
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Loss of guidance and consortium
Punitive damages may also be available in some cases. These are damages that may be ordered on top of compensatory damages when the actions of a defendant were particularly outrageous.
Types of Cases Handled by a Personal Injury Lawyer at The Lovely Law Firm
The injury lawyers at The Lovely Law Firm represent negligence victims in many different types of personal injury cases. Our breadth of legal knowledge and experience allows us to help the victims of negligence recover compensation in all of the types of injury claims that are described below.
Car accidents are common occurrences in Florence. While some accidents only result in property damage, others cause people to suffer serious injuries or death. Most auto accidents are caused by driver errors. If you have been injured because of the negligent mistakes made by another driver or entity in an automobile accident, you are entitled to file a claim for damages. Our attorneys can analyze what happened in your case and provide an assessment of your claim’s legal merits.
Florence is very close to the Dillon inland port. As a result, Florence has both an economic benefit from the port but also increased tractor-trailer traffic. Trucking accidents sometimes occur in the city as well as on Interstate I-95. Regardless of whether truck accidents happen within the city or on Interstate I-95, they often cause much more serious injuries and fatalities. This is because of the weight and size disparities between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles. Because of the risks involved with truck accidents, the industry is stringently regulated. Trucking carriers are required to carry liability insurance with high policy limits, and insurance and trucking companies tend to aggressively defend against trucking accident claims because of the monetary amounts that may be involved in these types of claims. Retaining a knowledgeable and highly skilled lawyer at The Lovely Law Firm might place you on more equal footing with the defense team representing the trucking company and increase the chances that you will recover the damages you deserve.
While many people love riding on motorcycles, motorcyclists face much higher risks of serious injuries or fatalities when they are involved in accidents. Motorcyclists have little to protect them from the forces of a collision and frequently suffer catastrophic injuries when they are struck by passenger vehicles. Florence is a great place for bikers and is a great bike ride to the ocean. Florence also has a large Harley Davidson dealership. Our lawyers understand the unique factors involved in motorcycle accident cases and are prepared to fight for your rights to recover damages from the negligent party that caused your accident and injuries.
Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents
Tens of millions of Americans slip, trip, and fall each year. While these types of accidents are common, they can cause serious injuries or death. When people slip and fall while visiting the property of others, they may have the legal right to pursue compensation. Property owners must maintain their properties in a reasonably safe condition. When invited guests, customers, or others who are lawfully visiting property are injured because of dangerous conditions that the property owners have failed to correct, the property owners may be liable to pay damages.
Dog bites can cause fractures, lacerations, and other serious injuries. People may be left with permanent scarring and emotional trauma after they are bitten by dogs. When a dog bites you in a public place or when you are lawfully on someone else’s property, the dog’s owner is liable to pay damages to you. Our attorneys represent dog bite victims to help them recover all of the compensation they deserve.
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that most employers in South Carolina are required to carry. This coverage allows people who suffer workplace injuries to file claims for benefits. The benefits include payments for all of your health care costs related to your injuries as well as partial or total disability benefits if you are temporarily or permanently unable to return to your job because of your injuries. Because of the availability of workers’ compensation, employees are generally not allowed to file lawsuits against their employers. However, if a third-party also contributed to your accident’s case, you may file a negligence lawsuit against the third party while pursuing a workers’ comp claim for benefits through your employer. Our attorneys can help you to recover all of the benefits and other compensation that you are entitled to receive.
Product manufacturers and designers must only release safe products. If a product has an unavoidable danger, warnings must be attached that clearly state the dangers the product has. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a product you purchased, you may have legal rights to recover compensation from all of the parties responsible for bringing it to the market. Our attorneys are equipped to handle the complexities of product liability claims.
Losing a loved one is always difficult. It might be even harder to deal with when your loved one’s death was caused by the wrongful or negligent conduct of another person or business. At The Lovely Law Firm, we fight to hold defendants who cause the deaths of others accountable for their actions and to secure full compensation for our clients.
